5.0 von 5 Sternen Lonely Planet Africa 18. Dezember 2009
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Ein ausgezeichnetes Kompendium ueber den "schwarzen Kontinent", uebersichtlich nach Staaten sortiert und innerhalb jeder Rubrik wieder einheitlich strukturiert. Mit unzaehligen, jeweils auf den neuesten Stand gebrachten praktischen Informationen zur Reisevorbereitung wie auch historischen, politischen und kulturellen Hintergrundinformationen. Behandelt auch kenntnisreich Staaten, die derzeit aus Sicherheitsgruenden nicht fuer eine Reise zu empfehlen sind ( Somalia, Kongo, Angola usw.) . Ersetzt viele Einzelwerke ueber Afrika.
Fuer mich DAS Standardwerk für den individuellen Afrika-Reisenden.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Okay, aber nicht gewohnte Lonley Planet Qualität 17. März 2014
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Ich bin ein überzeugter Lonley Planet Anhänger und habe mehrere Bücher in meinem Regal stehen. Der Afrikaführer ist der Erste von dem ich nicht überzeugt bin. Die Preise sind veraltet und er ist bei weitem nicht detailliert genug.

Format:Taschenbuch
Lonely planet ist unschlagbar. Alle wichtigen Informationen zu einer Reise quer durch Afrika in einem Buch. Zusätzliche Länderinformationen sind kaum noch nötig.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Don't head for Africa without Africa on a Shoestring in your pack 5. September 2005
Von Jason Brown - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
As someone who just returned from a solo tour(via local buses, trains and hitch-hiking) through Botswana, Zambia and Namibia with this book in my pack I feel I can review it more fairly than those who have simply looked it over while dreaming about a future trip.

While no single book can give an indepth look at every country, this one gives you all the information you need to travel through Africa on a budget. Best of all it is small enough to fit in your pack and well built enough to make it through the trip in one piece. I will be going back next year and this book will be coming along.

As you can guess, with only about twenty five pages per country, some info is glossed over or left out all together. Due to space constraints Lonely Planet left out some of the "where to go and what to see" advice but they made sure to include all the information relevant to transportation and lodging. If you need more indepth information you should buy one of the individual guides that cover each country you plan to visit along with Africa on a Shoestring.

My one gripe with this book is that it seems a bit too focused on the backpacker/camper type lodging. I personally prefere to travel like the locals and stay in guest-houses and cheap hotels and at times this book skips right over this information. The worst way to save three dollars a night is to pitch a tent on the ground instead of booking into a local guest house. When you stay at one of the urban campsites the only "culture" you are going to experience is provided by the young, loud, drunken tourists. Not my idea of fun.

If you are looking for a book that will make traveling in Africa trouble free you are going to be disspointed, that book does not exist and never will. In Africa almost nothing is easy and that includes travel. But that is part of the adventure.

If you want to see Africa without all the hassle then you need to talk to one of the travel agents who offer all inclusive tours for small groups in large overland trucks. You will get some nice photos but you won't really be traveling "in" Africa, you will be traveling "over" it, and you don't need any book for that.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not as detailed as the previous edition 22. Juli 2007
Von M. Tran - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I was traveling with the LP Africa on a Shoestring 6 months ago. I purchased this new edition to see how LP has updated it and I'm not impressed. I don't think they did much for the Southern Africa section except remove a few things like places to stay and cities that they didn't feel tourists would get to (ex: Barra in Mozambique, Nata and Ghanzi in Botswana). Don't even think about just taking this book when you're traveling (and I have seen travelers with only this book!). If you're planning just to do Southern Africa and/or East Africa, get the books LP has out for these two regions because they will be more detailed and meet friends along the way for more recent advice/info. I was surprised to find that some of the places I visited and enjoyed in Southern Africa were no longer in the new edition. The general country info and other advice in this book are still as good as the last edition (with more current events added) and I recommend it to anyone thinking about doing a multi-country trip to Africa. It is great for planning your travel destinations.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good overall, but very disappointing in places 1. März 2006
Von Robbie Honerkamp - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Lonely Planet is the leader in travel books. This isn't just my opinion, I've met many other travelers who won't go anywhere without the appropriate LP book. Africa on a Shoestring is a great guide, with information on places to stay and what to see, for travelers who don't want to spend a fortune and aren't afraid to get out and actually experience the local culture.

That being said, I'm really disappointed in parts of this book. As the market leader, LP should be able to keep its books properly updated. Yet many country sections start with: "We were unable to do on-the-ground research in (country_name), so some information in this chapter may not be reliable". While this is understandable in someplace like Liberia or Cote d'Ivoire where the national security situation is volatile, it's inexcusable for countries like Nigeria. Yes, there are some problem areas in Nigeria, and Lagos can indeed be chaotic. But Nigeria is not Lagos. And Nigeria is not the Niger Delta. I certainly hope that they manage to update some of these chapters for the next edition.

In the interest of full disclosure, here are the countries LP didn't bother to update for this edition: Guinea-Bissau, Nigeria Sierra Leone, Liberia, Cote d'Ivoire, Congo-Brazzaville, CAR, Congo-Kinshasa, Burundi, Somalia, Angola. Libya is listed as potentially being partially unreliable.

If you're traveling to Africa, my advice is to get this book _and_ the Rough Guide to whatever region of Africa you're going to. If you're going somplace that LP's book doesn't cover, look for a specific book that covers it. My last bit of advice for Africa travelers is to roll with the punches. There aren't nearly as many folks going to Africa as there are to Europe, so the information on Africa isn't as cutting-edge new. That hotel you read about and planned on staying in tonight? It burned down six months ago. But there are always other options, so just relax and take it easy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Travel collections will find this a popular pick 16. Oktober 2010
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Anthony Ham's AFRICA packs in over 250 detailed small maps and is the only guide for independent travelers to cover the entire continent. Fast facts, tips on where to see local culture and wildlife alike, and plenty of town-by-town descriptions for accommodations, food and more make this a thick but welcome take-along tote. Travel collections will find this a popular pick.

3.0 von 5 Sternen It's just too much for one book 13. Mai 2005
Von Pauley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I applaud LP for taking on the challenge of a book that covers the entire continent, but it's just too much for one book. I bought it in order to piece together an itinerary, but it doesn't do a good job in linking the countries together. Under the "suggested itineraries" it really just says it will depend on your money and time (uh, thanks, no kidding) and then tells you where NOT to go (Congo, Sierra Leone, etc)

The newest version is at least clumps groups of countries together. Mine is just a year old and has the countries in alpha order.

I would suggest buying the smaller books (LP East Africa, etc) instead.
